The Goonies Never Say Die At the Aspen Grove Outdoor Free Family Film Series

Pirates, booty -- er, booby traps -- and Truffle Shuffles all await!

The Goonies Never Say Die At the Aspen Grove Outdoor Free Family Film Series

The secret caves. The old lighthouse. The lost map. The treacherous traps. The hidden treasure. And Sloth ... they're all coming to Aspen Grove!

Well, ok. We haven't gotten confirmation on Sloth.   But we're excited to announce that THE GOONIES is the third film of our Aspen Grove Outdoor Free Family Film Series, and will be screening on Tuesday, June 25. Festivities kick off at 7:00, and the film will screen roughly around 8:30

Our parking lot will be transformed into the ultimate pirate hideout, so watch out for booty -- er, booby -- traps!   One-Eyed Willie has revived himself especially to host, and will be bringing his crew of scallywags along for the ride. Keep a weather eye out ... you may need to know where all the pirates are if you want to find any buried treasure!

In addition to a treasure hunt, One-Eyed Willie will be leading all our Goonies in a series of games inspired by the film.  For the kids, we'll have a cannonball battle, Pinchers of Power, a storytelling contest, and much more.  For adults, you'll want to bring your best Truffle Shuffle, trivia knowledge, and Fratelli appetites ... this is a night that seperates the Goonies from the Country Club wannabes.

Costumes aren't required, but are welcome and encouraged! Break out your finest pirate gear, or your best Goonie movie outfit, and we may just reward you for the effort.

The Humane Society of South Platte Valley will be on hand with some furry friends in need of forever homes, and to talk about their important work.  For a $4 donation, they'll give you a beer voucher that you can exchange for some delicious brew.  Our brewer for this event will be Breckenridge Brewery, who will be on hand to introduce themselves and their delicious wares to the neighborhood. 

All of this adventure will surely give you an appetite, but we'll have you covered.  Burgers, hot dogs, candy, soda, and popcorn will be available for purchase from our Alamo galley.  

So, prepare to board our deck, and join us for THE GOONIES on Tuesday, June 25.  Remember, this may be our last chance to see if there's any rich stuff buried under Aspen Grove, because it's our time down here!
